Hi. I went to school to learn to work on computers for two years so I might know something. Check the RAM. The memory that goes in the computer. I'm NOT talking about the hard drive, or flash memory. These are the long chips that plug into the motherboard (mainboard) inside. One of the things that happens when memory goes out is NOTHING like you're getting. If you can get ahold of a known good chip and replace the chip in the computer with the good one and the computer comes to life, that's the problem. Which computer is it.

    I was basing my solution on the fact that there were no POST beeps which to me seems more likely a problem with memory, or even the processor (which could easily be bad if it was running with NO fan). The fan would be easy to fix, but the processor could cost a bit. I'd check all of the above if it was my machine.

Hi,

My name is ArmyMason, I think I have an answer for you. You seem to have one of two issues, the most likely issue you are experiencing with your Acer is a bad Power Supply. The only fan you are hearing is the Power Supply fan and no beeps its the Power Supply. If its was the fan on the processor you heard it could mean the Processor is bad. If this is a brand new computer I would most likely put my money on it being the Power Supply. A relativity cheap fix.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

This motherboard is strange in that when the CMOS battery dies, it wont POST and wont have video output. Just replace the CMOS battery and it should work again. And also set the new date+time.

No monitor or keyboard, fan is loud, Monitor puts up th no input message but wont turn on, keyboard lights are not on either


> fan is loud

When you first turn the computer on, the full runs at 100%, until the motherboard's "POST" (Power On Self Test) procedure has checked all the hardware, and "beeped" the speaker just once.

So, no "beep" (or multiple "beeps") and the 100% speed of the fan suggest a hardware problem with your motherboard.

Take your computer to a qualified technician for professional trouble-shooting.

Continous beeps usually mean the motherboard or the power supply, Try another power supply first and see if it will boot, if not the motherboard is faulty, if the prossesor was faulty you would no beeps the fans would run but nothing on the screen. hope this helps.

My acer travelmate wont boot just beeps 4 times i recently reinstalled XP Pro os on acer ferrari 4000 and have recieved this same problem 4 beeps and black screen.won't boot..bios or os. HELP


I long + 3 short beeps or 3 short + 1 long beeps indicates memory problem.
The RAM module/s may need reseating to re-establish proper electrical contact.
If it still doesn't boot up then :-
Get the RAM module/s may be faulty, test the module/s in another laptop or get your friendly computer shop to test them.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

ACER Aspire- beeping sound - 6seconds when I power machine on


The beeps are telling you there is a hardware failure (POST). The number and length of beeps will give a better indication as to what has failed. Write back with that info and someone on this web site will interpret this for you.
